Couple shots from a recent simple session with a super rare 1966 Shelby GT350 Hertz Edition. You can see more shots and read a little bit more about the car on my blog (external link) if you're interested!

Nice Pics, but this is not a Hertz Edition! Original Hertz Edition where most painted in black with golden LeMans-Stripes (about 800 pcs.), and each 50 untis in white, red, blue and green, but without (!) LeMans-Stripes! The non-black-cars had only stripes at the side of the car, but not the LeMans-Stripes. By the way must it be a GT350H to be a Hertz Edition. ;-)a
When this car should be super rare, than the decals should be correct. This could be only a "normal" Shelby GT 350, but no Hertz.

But the Pictures are really good. I Like it as well. The first one is the best for me.

Greets,

Ben

Thanks for your insight, but this is indeed a Hertz Shelby, one of the first and the earliest serial number known to exist. More info on the car's history here (external link).

Thanks for the catch on the GT350H!

Thanks for the photos and the story behind them. I never knew these existed in any color except black.ߘ

Nice photos Theo. Like the others I've only known Black cars as Hurst editions & also never knew any had Paxton's on them.

#3 does it for me! Fastbacks are sexy. My Dad had a Green 1967. Wish we still owned it.
